There's no solution to it. Addiction, even though it was tainted drugs, has so cure. The only cure to anything that is self destructing is self control. Those people took a risk, sad but true

I’m from south of Pittsburgh (Washington, PA) and heroin is a major problem. I can’t even begin to tell you how many people I grew up with, including my wife’s cousin, that have died in recent years because of that crap. Like AllPossible said, it’s on the people who have done it. No matter how much you try to help your friends they make their own choices and you have to walk away at some point because they’ll only bring you down with them. I’m luckily far away from that town but my parents still live there and I have to worry what some addict would do to score a few dollars.

Police are racing to piece together what happened on Saturday night, Togneri said, but have landed on a working theory that the men were at a venue together and gathered at an apartment after-party, where they took drugs together.

Where is the mystery? The police have just got to find where the party was.

Then see if they can find who supplied the deadly drug, that will be the hard part.

Philly is right there with ya. News is saying they were all together and took the same drugs. Sounds like it may have contained a lot of Fentanyl.

A man was arrested today for supplying the drug that the users thought was cocaine. Police said the victims started to drop immediately after using the drug.

Prince od on Fentanyl which is extremely dangerous. It's basically suicide to use it.

not to sound too weenee ( which i am on this subject ) but this is why i never tried recreational drugs,

some deaths i knew of,

i knew of a cocaine dealer, girls flocked to him, and not just for the dope, he has drugs on him police chance him and while hiding behind a dumpster he swallows all his stash,

killed him pretty quickly.

 

i knew of a guy i didnt like much real arrogant spud, went to jail for shooting up his friend and killing him and rather than take dying friend to hostpital he dumps him on the street i heard.

i knew a  nice19 yo kid, shot up a hot mix and died on a street corner...

wifes exes bro ODed, and a year or so before his sister kills herself.

its goes on and on.

There is nothing romantic about drug abuse. It surprices me that some rock stars is still alive like Robert Smith, Iggy Pop, Nikky six, Ozzy osbourne etc.

after the show i talked to iggy pop for a few, he was very nice down to earth fellow, he was wearing jeans so tight he basically kept the top unbuttoned, no shirt hes very scarred up from his messed up days and i just cant recall if i read it or he said it to me, about stopping that so he didnt end up dead.

sixx is just a very lucky guy hes died 2 or 3 times so he says,

oddly others joey ramone, lux interior, died of natural issues, stiv bators who i just love lords of new church and dead boys, he dies from getting hit by a car.

Yes Robert Smith (The Cure) they recently got inducted to the Rock n' Roll hall of fame. He made the album Pornography in 1982 cause he had to choose between making an album or to die of drug abuse. Needless to say they were on so much drugs the album almost wasn't made.
